Fulham vs Aston Villa Prediction: Premier League Match on 20.10.2022
Betting TipFulham to Win
There will be a massive fixture at Craven Cottage on Thursday for Steven Gerrard and his Aston Villa side. The travelling side has won just once in their previous six fixtures, while Fulham could move into the top seven with a victory in front of their home fans.
Premier League Preview
There is a growing sense that Steven Gerrard’s days at Aston Villa are numbered, and the final nail in the coffin could come on Thursday against Fulham. The Villa are just a point above the relegation zone coming into this round of fixtures, as they have lost five of the ten games that they have played this term. They are also among the lowest scorers in the division this term, having found the back of the net on just seven occasions.
Their latest defeat was against Chelsea on Sunday afternoon, as they were beaten 2-0 by Graham Potter’s side. Villa created no shortage of clear scoring opportunities in that fixture, but they were largely wasteful in front of goal. However, they can ill-afford to be that reluctant in front of goal on the road this week.
It has been a very strong start to the season for Fulham, as they sit eleventh in the Premier League standings after ten rounds of fixtures. The Cottagers are nearly halfway to their desired 40-point target, which would likely mean survival from relegation, but their recent form has nose-dived slightly.
Fulham come into this fixture having gone three without a win in the Premier League. During that run, they have been beaten on two occasions. However, they ended any worries of a third straight defeat over the weekend, as they played out a 2-2 draw against Bournemouth.
Fulham vs Aston Villa Head to Head
Fulham were beaten 3-0 in their previous home fixture against Villa, but they have never lost back-to-back home games against the West Midlands side. However, Villa’s side against newly promoted sides is extremely poor, as they have won just two of their previous nine; with both victories coming against Norwich City last season.
Fulham vs Aston Villa Prediction
Villa desperately need something from this fixture on Thursday, but Fulham has a fine record in home fixtures against the Midlands side. The Cottagers look good value to bounce back to winning ways this week against a struggling Villa side.
